Last Night of Sunny’s Someday Steakhouse Lot 6 Pop-Up

On Friday (this evening), after spending the past year operating Sunny’s Someday Steakhouse in Little River, Jaguar Sun will host the pop-up’s last night of dinner service at Lot 6. Offering steaks and seafood cooked over a live fire along with more than 20 martini variations poured tableside, the pop-up quickly became a dining refuge during the pandemic, allowing Jaguar Sun to pivot its business to survive COVID-19. After Jaguar Sun’s 15-month hiatus from its original location in downtown Miami, the restaurant is poised to reopen in late June. 7357 NW Miami Ct., Miami; 786-860-2422; jaguarsunmia.com. Reservations are encouraged.
